Guangdong held a seminar on intellectual property rights (IP) protection on April 28thto help businesses better understand related issues in the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) – the world’s largest free trade agreement that took effect on January 1st 2022 among the 15 Asia-Pacific countries, including the 10 ASEAN countries, China, Japan, Republic of Korea, Australia and New Zealand.

Around 300 representatives attended the seminar to discuss issues such as RCEP’s general framework for IPR protection, hands-on guidelines to manage in-house IP. The attendees were from Cantonese business alliances in RCEP nations, relevant agencies, trade associations, chambers of commerce, and individual companies.

Wang Jiazheng, President of Canton Chamber of Commerce in New Zealand, observed that in order to protect the interests of both sides in a trade deal, it is of vital importance for businesses in Guangdong to continuously learn about IPR protection laws and regulations in RCEP countries, for example, the basic law on IP, what constitutes IP infringement, and judicial procedures and enforcement.

Xu Fengpei, Chairman of the Vietnam Chinese Chamber of Commerce Guangdong Business Association, said that the Chamber has been helping enterprises on IP affairs in trade between Guangdong Province and Vietnam.  In this way, businesses can apply, revoke, transfer, and consult about IP related issues such as patent, trademark and copyright.

The seminar was organized by Guangdong Administration for Market Regulation (Guangdong Intellectual Property Administration) and CCPIT Guangdong Committee.

According to Qiu Zhaoxian, Vice President of CCPIT Guangdong Committee, CCPIT Guangdong is the largest provincial service provider that boosts foreign trade and investment and offers international commercial legal service. It will continue to work with government departments including Guangdong Administration for Market Regulation (Guangdong Intellectual Property Administration) to safeguard enterprises when they go global and expand overseas markets.
